1We love these platform games on Xbox

Spyro Reignited 1

Let’s face it: jumping across floating islands and bouncing on enemies’ heads is always a lot of fun.

And those two things are of course key staples in any good platform game. While the genre has been around almost as long as videogames themselves, they’ve fallen out of popularity a little in recent years – but that doesn’t mean there aren’t worthwhile platform games out there.

On Xbox One, there’s a wide choice of games in the genre, from modern 3D adventures to old school-style 2D retro platformers. Heck, there are even remasters of our favourite platform games from our childhood (we’re looking at you, Spyro and Crash). If you’re wondering what are the best platform games available on Xbox One, look no further; we’ve got you covered.
